    Clay Walker is a regular, straight-ahead guy. You can tell that by his demeanor, through his polite speech, and in his grass-roots country style. His energetic, heartfelt, twang-and-tonk debut introduces a fresh-faced newcomer with enormous potential. You know that when he sings about the simple joys of "skippin' rocks" on such heel-kicking hits as "What's It To You" and "Live Until I Die," Walker isn't kidding. He's pure '90s-style country. Other standouts include "Dreaming With My Eyes Wide Open" and "Where Do I Fit In The Picture."
    Hailing from the same hometown as George Jones, Tracy Byrd and Mark Chesnutt, Clay has taken a giant leap with this contemporary, tradition-based collection. They should bottle that water in Beaumont, Texas, and sell it to all aspiring country stars.

    Clay Walker is another country music product from Beaumont, TX (others include George Jones, Mark Chestnut, Doug Supernaw, and Tracy Bird) who has broken into the Nashville music scene. Walker has a high-energy voice and a growl that reminds you of Conway Twitty. The highlights of his first album include "What's It to You?," his first number one hit, and "Live Until I Die." Other featured songs include "The Silence Speaks for Itself" and "White Palace." ~ Larry Powell

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (9/17/93, p.89) - " a writer, he's got hook-filled songs. As a singer, he's got [Clint] Black's producer. And as a hunk with a serio-sullen stare, well, isn't that all it takes these days?..." - Rating: B+
